comment Black Screen With Cursor on Logout in Yosemite
Used to be I could SSH in when this happened and kill loginwindow; lately that's not even working and I think I'll need to do a full restart. Driving me crazy.

comment “Log out (username)” logs out all users
Still happening, not always getting the prompt but I'll log out one user, then switch to another, then everything freezes for 2 or 3 seconds and I'm back at the user selection screen with all logged-in users logged out. This is really getting infuriating.

comment “Log out (username)” logs out all users
No reboot. The really crazy part is that everybody isn't just logged out unceremoniously, it's actually the prompt (which you can't always see, because you're not at User B's desktop, unless you click through to User B right away) followed by the 60-second countdown, followed by logout. This is driving me nuts.

comment How do I delete a single file from the Trash?
Came back to look at a new answer and realized I'd never really addressed the comments about my use case. The reason I like the "recycle bin" analogy in Windows is that you get the benefits of Trash (one-click restore) plus the ability to quickly make space on a drive by deleting a few big files on-demand, without having to carefully sift through the rest of the folder to make sure that yes, you really don't need everything.

comment Has anyone actually gotten AT&T to unlock an iPhone?
As an update, in case anyone is reading this in the far flung future of a year later, AT&T relented shortly after this answer was posted and now has an official policy of unlocking all phones (even Apple ones) for accounts that have spent a certain amount of time in good standing.

comment Can I use the iPad mini (Wi-Fi+cellular) as a cellphone?
Keep in mind: the iPad does not have a motor, so notifications (text messages, appointments, incoming calls) will not get your attention if you manage to pocket it, even after you figure out VoIP, etc.

comment Can't sync iPod Touch 5G with iPhoto, Lightroom
Correct. After I posted this, I connected the device to my only Windows laptop, and all the photos showed up and transferred fine. I'm still baffled what could have gone wrong, and what I could have done to fix it if I hadn't owned any Windows boxen....
